Myrrh, Mothwing, Smoke: Erotic Poems


Myrrh, Mothwing, Smoke: Erotic Poems Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Poetry. In 2007, the Tupelo Press Poetry Project was established to provide poets and creative writing teachers with engaging, challenging prompts or provocations for writing new poems.

The Winter 2012 edition of the Poetry Project celebrated Valentine's Day with a simple challenge: write a stunningly good erotic poem. Be bad. Be good and bad. To our delight, that challenge was met and then some. Sensual, witty, cerebral—the results are this anthology, modest in size only, which includes the winners, plus our favorites of the submissions.
